Murlo

Murlo

Kerri Chandler’s hefty kick drum. Todd Edwards’  vocal cut ups. Coki’s snarling sub bass. These elements are sonic signatures for the producers that created them – components of their celebrated sounds that can be recognised from a mile off.  The last couple of years have seen a new musical motif start to reach towards that pantheon of timeless sounds, in the shape of Chris Pell aka. Murlo’s effervescent synth melodies. An illustrator by day, Pell cut his teeth in music as a DJ – playing everything from Soca to Garage, before he began to sculpt his distinct style across releases for Glacial Sound and Unknown To The Unknown. Serving as the gloss over 2-Step and UKG indebted rhythmic foundations, his colourful synths have helped to separate his club constructions from the pack – making him one of the most exciting producers to emerge in the so called second wave of instrumental Grime. With his latest EP, ‘Into Mist’ out on Rinse, Pell looks set to cement his status as both an innovator of sounds and destroyer of dancefloors – with four wildly creative tracks that make a mockery of genre conventions.
